Cannot Beat the Location
We loved Avani at Victoria Falls! There yould not have been a better experience. We were worried that our stay would not be as good as it could have been due to covid-19, but we were very impressed. The staff were all wearing masks. They made us feel welcome from moment one and quickly responded to any concern we had. You CANNOT beat the location! It is a five minute walk to the falls. You can see the falls and then return to your room for a hot bath. There are zebra right next to you constantly. There are also monkeys and elk nearby. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

A little bit of Africa right outside your room
Amazing hotel right in the center of a national park with direct access to the falls. If you want to experience a little bit of Africa right outside your hotel room, you must stay here. Where on earth could you stay. In a 1st class hotel that has giraffe, zebras, monkey & springboks strolling around. 5 minutes walk from the complex & you are in the Zambia side of the falls. Your hotel stay includes admission to this side of the falls, as many times as you want to visit. The Zimbabwe side is about a 30 minute walk....not the greatest with lots of trucks & local people trying to sell something & yo.u have to transit boarder & passport check. The service at the hotel is 1st rate, everybody is so nice. Breakfast is god with lots of the usual choices, they also have a small section for glutton free. Dinner at the hotel was good also. You can book tours in the lobby & the staff is knowledgeable.

Wild oasis
Avani is a lovely oasis with a casual luxury vibe. Can't get over how zebra, impala, giraffes, and other animals casually roam the grounds. Was amazing and the staff made sure the cohabitation was safe. It's nice you can visit the Livingston sister property to view the sunset from their viewing deck or dine for variety if you like. And there is a on demand shuttle between the two where you are likely to see animals on the way. Conveniently located near the Zimbabwe border so walking to the falls on the other side is feasible.

The best part is that the Avani is on the grounds of Victoria Falls. The hotel is decorated in African motif. Real animals, e.g., zebra, giraffe, monkeys, and baboon wander around the grounds. It is easy to get a very close-up photo.

Great location resort style hotel. Food average. Free and EASY access to falls on Zambian side and really easy to go to the Zimbabwean side, which is a must, even for a couple of hours. We will go back.

Fabulous location just a short walk from the Victoria Falls, and with zebras, impalas etc wandering freely around the property.
Chris, za3 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
The hotel staff are absolutely lovely and a real credit to the hotel. The hotel itself has lovely local artwork scattered around. The rooms are small and ours had no main light so was very dark. The room and communal areas were very clean The rooms are quite tight - ours had a painted concrete floor, two uncomfortable queen beds and none of the extras you would expect for over £250 per night. Not much info on arrival about what’s at the hotel (small craft shops for example tucked away out of sight) - the pool was great - we had a fantastic stay but you do pay a lot. I suspect for the excellent location 5 minutes from the falls!
